Album Review

Here is presented a duo of nephews to the great mountain of a man Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, in their attempt to continue the outstanding line of qawwali after the death of Nusrat.

This is outstanding qawwali by any measure, though other members of the family should still be the starting point for any intrepid listener.
